New horizons...

When 102 passengers sailed on the Mayflower from Plymouth, England, on 16 September 1620, their sights were set on a fresh start. They landed in Plymouth Bay over three months later and by spring, just under half of those who had landed in the New World had survived. The original ‘Thanksgiving’ feast was held that autumn, after their first successful harvest, and the spirit of the Mayflower pilgrims endures in this national celebration to this day. The coin is designed by Chris Costello an award winning graphic designer, coin designer, illustrator, and type designer based in Boston, Massachusetts. Interesting fact, in 1983, he designed the popular font Papyrus (which is what i have used just for this page). Chris transitioned to publishing in the mid 1990’s and created book covers and illustrations for Harper Collins, Candlewick Press, Scholastic, Random House, and Viking Press. By the early 2000’s, he was designing websites for filmmakers and writers including New York Times best-selling authors Matthew Pearl and Robert Kurson.
